Every year, there are enough new holiday movies on TV only on the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries only, and the 2022 movie was no different.
With 40 movies premiering between “Countdown to Christmas” and “Christmas Miracles,” October 21 through December 18, it can be hard to narrow down your favorite picks. Would you rather change the classic tale? Hallmark’s first movie with the main LGBTQ+ couple? Three leading men together? latest in Come home for Christmas franchise?
Below, we present some of our favorites from the season (in order of premiere, not ranking), and then ask you to vote in a poll which movie from this year’s showings you thought were the best.
Christmas ghosts always
In this fun take on Christmas carolPresent Christmas (Kim Matula’s Katherine) in a twist of her annual traditions alongside the past (Lori Tan Chinn’s Arlene) and future (Reginald VelJohnson’s Roy) not only with the person they’re supposed to help (Not It turns out Peter Ian Harding) but also with what’s coming for herself.
Three wise men and a child
Having three Hallmark big men — Paul Campbell (who wrote it with Kimberly Sustad, another fave), Andrew Walker, and Tyler Haynes — in a movie together works out better than we expected. They play brothers who take care of a baby at the fire station, and while romance isn’t the focus, of course they each eventually find love.
It’s time to come home for Christmas
The latest in the franchise based on the book It’s time to go home Dorothy Shackelford, Travis Thrasher and Blake Shelton’s song of the same name is also the best yet. Hynes and Holland Roden play former best friends who come together to track down the intended recipient of a voicemail left on her phone by mistake. As a result, a couple finds love, and a denouement is found in connection with a tragic accident that affected all four people.
Proof that Hallmark films are still must-sees even without the romance in their midst, the film sees a new angel (Mykelti Williamson) return to Earth in a different form (BJ Britt) to bring his two sisters (Nadine Ellis and Tamala Jones) back together in time for the holidays.
A Hallmark first movie with a leading LGBTQ+ couple is fun — Sam (Jonathan Bennett) turns to his sister’s neighbor Jason (Chrisa George) for help watching her kids — and heartwarming, plus the stars have great chemistry that makes us want to see them work together again after their first scene together ! The cute encounter is adorable, the plot is engaging, and the love story is one we need to see more of in the future.
Just the night before Christmas
The Kosters (Tori DeVito and Zane Holtz) meet when she puts out a play that’s also part of a mock trial (with ghosts?!), to determine who wrote “A Visit From St. Nick” – Clement Clarke Moore or Henry Livingston Jr. Never date an actor who’s leaving the window, and what makes it all work is that it’s reasonable to believe the two are friends (and he’ll spend some time away from his family doing a play).
Hanukkah is rye
We will admit: Shop around the corner/You’ve got mail Feelings automatically make us love them. Thanks to a matchmaker, Molly (Yael Groblas) and Jacob (Jeremy Jordan) inadvertently exchange letters, fall in love, while bickering when his family prepares to open a Jewish restaurant near her home.
